Car is now sitting on the ground but today was problematic. I pushed the outer bearing on the rear spindle only to notice I forgot the seal. Bent bearing pulling it off, luckily had a new spare, then lost the needle rollers out of a new UJ ( previously put uv!) joint so had to use another new one. Oh well. Many thanks to Nick down the M4 for overnighting the bearing shims that was holding me up.
Brightened up the garage with stripes on the decklid then came in for a Lotus biscuit.
Started stripping the hood this morning, no drama’s just a dig and three stars to sort out.There was three empty mugs in the garage, the paint chippings that came off filled two of them. Then lunch arrived.
Turned the car round and started made a start on making the car look really ugly. The nose surprisingly has only clear coat, red, gold, primer and a smearing of filler to remove. Blades work well on paint but not so well over filler. Slow job.
The edges are scraped off gingererly at first until it cuts right then just keep it moving in that position which is normally the same way you would use a spokeshave. Yes you can dig into body especially when there is hidden filler. I use a snap on razor handle and the Stanley knife blade equivalent. Using a blade is quicker, cleaner,safer although when finished it gets sanded,filled,keyed as normal.
